Update site from mysql to mysqli

Hi,

I have a site that I built way back in the late 2000's using the normal server behaviours. I know that it will need to be updated to use MySQLi. I own all your extensions including the MySQLi one.

My question is, how easy is it up update the site. Is there a step by step guide to doing it? The site is a dymaic one with lot's of database tables (it's for a town council), it's full if council members, committee members, minutes of meetings and page content.

Any help and pointers in the right direction would be appreciated.

Many thanks,

John

It would be a manual process of updating all of the code. You would want to do it page by page replacing recordsets and recordset references. There aren't currently any guides to help with this.
